Knowing Your Limitations Behind The Wheel
Driving you car should be effortless. Loss of strength or flexibility can make it harder to safely control you car. If you have trouble looking over your shoulder to change lanes, moving your foot from the gas pedal to the brake pedal or turning the steering wheel, you need to tell your doctor. Physical problems that impede your reaction time can jeopardize your safety and the safety of others on the road. In addition, you need to be aware of fatigue behind the wheel. Know your limitations. Driving long distances can lead to pain and cramps in your back, legs and ankles.
